The RSC have just announced an exciting new book series on metallobiology, to provide an insightful perspective on the role of metals in biology.   As Editor-in-Chief, Professor David Garner (University of Nottingham, UK) will lead the Editorial Board of this Book Series, working with Professor Hongzhe Sun (University of Hong Kong, China), Professor Ann Walker (University of Arizona, USA) and Professor Anthony Wedd (University of Melbourne, Australia).

The Series will include the following topics:

  • Binding, transport and storage of metal ions
  • Interactions of metal ions with biomolecules, including proteins, DNA, RNA and nucleotides
  • Metal-based pharmaceuticals, including delivery and function
  • Bioorganometallic chemistry
  • Metalloporphyrins
  • Biominerals, biomineralization, biomaterials and bionanomaterials
  • Metal-based disease states, infection and immunology
  • Metal toxicology
  • Environmental bioinorganic chemistry
  • Metalloproteins
  • Metalloenzymes, including DNAzymes and ribozymes
  • Metallomes of biological systems
  • Metallothioneins
  • Bioimaging and biosensing of metals
  • Speciation of metals in biological systems
  • Spectroscopic investigations of metals in biological systems
  • Structural studies of metalloenzymes, metalloproteins and other metal-containing biomolecules
